“This was a really wonderful experience. I signed up on a whim one night when my baby had been crying for hours and I knew I needed support. It far exceeded my expectations. It really is important to talk to other moms during the early days of motherhood. It is so helpful and reassuring and makes you feel less alone. Natalia and Ash were also fantastic guides with a wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend to any mom!”
“I am so grateful for meeting and sharing space with other new moms especially during a pandemic where we don’t see family and friends much. The Mother’s Circle enabled a platform to talk about our real experiences- highs and lows- across breastfeeding, sleep, self care, relationships, identity, and preparing to return to work. The facilitators were amazing with their insights and support, and their organization helped make the most of each session.”
“Do this for you and sign up! Having their support along with the connection with the other mothers during this time (new baby and pandemic) was invaluable. I would do this again in a heart beat.”

Without my Mother’s Circle I wouldn’t have survived the first few weeks of motherhood. I learned how to put my baby on a nap schedule, how to transition from pumping back to breastfeeding, and most importantly, how to care for myself during such a crazy time. It was a transformative experience, now we want to make finding your perfect Mother's Circle easier than ever.
The topics in our Mother’s Circle are most relevant to the 4th Trimester, the 3 months following your baby’s birth. We recommend enrolling in a group that begins 2-6 weeks after your expected due date.
Mother’s Circles are led weekly by the same doula facilitator. Plus, we invite guest speakers and trusted wellness experts including an Internationally Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), an Infant Sleep Specialist, or Maternal Mental Health Provider to select calls so you can get access to even more expert support.
Cancellation – We are unable to honor cancellations, but we are happy to change the group cohort to another time if available or the membership can be transferred to another mom. Refunds - Your weekly charge of $25 is inclusive of all services during the program. If you miss a weekly call, we are unable to honor a refund for that weekly charge.
